Please add the advanced animation timeline view (that is available in the PC version) so that you can see all the animations on a slide laid out visually.
Thanks for your feedback! The PowerPoint for Mac team is reviewing your suggestion and will consider it in future planning rounds.
Remember, this site helps us to prioritize our backlog so the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. If this is a feature that is important to you, be sure to give it a vote!
Please add the advanced timeline for MAC. I now have to switch back to a PC to animate.
it is very important. without that, the animation is very hard to do. had no problem with the windows version.
Please add the same animation timeline to Mac version! Not seeing the elements in a timeline makes it 1000x more difficult to animate and timing. THIS is the single biggest headache and many times I have had to advise my clients to have their presentations be designed in Keynote. Adobe makes their tools 99% similar functionality for Mac and PC, why can’t you?
Two months later (August 30), two more updates, no Advance Timeline so far. I've lost another request from a client which I could not make without that tool because.
Can Microsoft just stop to treat Mac users as second sort of people? We paid for application and there were no information that i.e. advanced timeline - NOT INCLUDED, paste EMF graphics from clipboard copied from external applications (i.e. Illustrator) - NOT INCLUDED, editing font group for themes - NOT INCLUDED.
Under review since Jan 25... any Progress fella? We paid for hal made product with limited functionality and you still keep us at the same point of your ignorance. Just Microsoft.
... and add option to switch animation off/on (eyeball) as in Selection pane for objects.
Vote for: reverse (wheel) effect and advanced timeline feature for mac users.

Appear animation letter by letter - In Powerpoint for Mac 2016 there is not an option to adjust the length of time between letters. On other versions this is give by "seconds delay between letters". Would be useful to have this in.
I think this idea was already posted here: https://powerpoint.uservoice.com/forums/288925-powerpoint-for-mac/suggestions/10709757-animation-timeline
you might want to go vote that one up instead to keep the votes all in one place.
PowerPoint suggestion: Sometimes the easiest way to do a complex set of animations for a slide is to continue over multiple slides. In that case, it would be good if there were a way to get those slides to all show the same number.
I am a UX design and I used to work with PPT on pc
In my new work we work with MAC
And since all of the missing feature on mac (animation timeline is one of the importance for me)
I am forced to use with different programs
Daniel Schulz commented
When animating multiple object, its impecable to know in what order the current selected object is located.
When I click on an object on the slide please highlight all animations for this object in the animation pane (just like in the windows version)
Karen Higman commented
I am in the same boat as Shawn below. We have the kiddie version of PowerPoint
The most frustrating thing. I am a designer and work with non designers who use PC's so they want me to work on PPT to appease these people.
I cannot do most of the advanced animation I need to do in this program. As a result I do not want to use it and it just becomes a source of frustration.
If you want to appeal to anybody beyond a basic PPT user including designers PLEASE bring the more advanced features including the TIMELINE VIEW into the Mac version.
Need .svg icons for Powerpoint on Mac. It's there in PC.
Federico Navarrete commented
Yes, we cannot even add multiple animations, I must switch between a PC and a Mac if I want to add just one more.
This app needs a time line for Mac
Powerpoint 2011 allowed the Animation Pane icon to appear in the Quick Access Toolbar, which proved very helpful. in 2016, one must select the Animations TAB and then click on the icon. Annoying change from something that worked well before.

What in the world. How is this still not a thing?
Joe Nersveen commented
Having 14 randomly assigned "object ##" to animation elements (half of which have the IDENTICAL OBJECT ## - even though they're totally different objects) makes it VERY DIFFICULT to animate anything besides just a few elements, and the lack of a SELECTION AND VISIBILITY option on the MAC version of PPTX 2016, only makes it more user unfriendly. AT THE VERY LEAST make animation object names customizable so WE can do something that makes sense.
